Do you use an actual textbook for your courses? Why or why not? If not, what do you use instead?

I use my textbook mostly as a guide. I will pick some of the materials from the book and supplement info. It also depends on the book


I use the textbook for me, but I haven’t had students use one in a few years. I find the books are more informative rather than interactive, so we build activities using the content.


I use some from my textbook and some from other teachers.

What textbooks have/do you use?
